Understanding what asset management is and how it can help you is a critical tool in building your asset management program. It allows you to communicate clearly and develop a common understanding of what you are collectively trying to achieve.
A foundational element of your asset management program is the asset inventory. Determining what assets and their characteristics you are going to collect and maintain will be a big step forward in having a good asset management program.
Clearly defining what you are trying to do with your asset management program is key to your success. An asset management program can fail if there are too many program parts or features without a clear understanding of what is to be achieved.
Developing a good TAMP provides a helpful blueprint on what you need to do and how to do it. It will help you make clear to all who are involved what they are responsible for doing and how it comes together for better asset management.
An asset management system helps you determine what is needed to improve your asset’s performance and helps you manage the improvement process.
